On Monday, October 2nd, we kicked off our week of action, by demanding President Biden expand his historic marijuana pardons. Today, we’re taking it a step further: we’re pushing for full cannabis decriminalization.
The recent recommendation by the Department of Health and Human Services to shift marijuana from Schedule 1 to Schedule 3 in the Controlled Substances Act (CSA) would not stop the policies that necessitate pardons such as those issued by President Biden. Why? Because possessing a Schedule 3 drug remains illegal, even if you have a medical marijuana recommendation from your doctor.
While we aim for more pardons from President Biden, it’s crucial to address the root of the issue: the policies that make these pardons necessary. Our mission is clear: ensure cannabis is fully decriminalized and seek justice for all harmed through prohibition.
